Somewhere in Hueneme Masonic Cemetery, beneath the weeds and ice plant, beneath the dry earth swollen by gophers, is Oxnard's history. City pioneers, whose names folks today would recognize from street signs, are buried in the cemetery's overgrown plots. Now the South Oxnard Revitalization Committee is cleaning up the 101-year-old graveyard that they consider a city landmark. On Saturday, volunteers raked the plots, carried away debris and swept off headstones.

Dane Gillebrand knew zilch about the blues and even less about philanthropy when he left South Africa for college in America at 18. That was 1993, when Gillebrand's life plan seemed so simple: He would graduate from film school at Florida State University, move to Hollywood and make great movies to entertain humanity.
